Home Health

A New Approach on Home Health Physical Therapy Services!

Question: “Why should the patient at home, who can’t get to a facility to reap the benefits that outpatient has to offer, have to go without?”

               Benefits:

  • Large Coverage Area

  • PT/OT/SLP

  • Evaluations Completed within 24 hours (sooner if needed or as requested)

    • Includes use of Micro-Fet for strength testing (OBJECTIVE MEASURES)

    • Functional Outcome Assessment (such as OPTIMAL, if requested)

    • Balance testing: (TUG or other Balance assessment)

    • Development of Functional Goals

    • LETTER OF MEDICAL NECESSITY IF PT. REQUIRES MORE THAN USUAL NUMBER OF VISITS TO REACH GOALS

  • Care that is not considered ordinary when it comes to Home Health Services. (Most Contract PT services will provide the basic exercises in sitting, standing, and maybe some walking. If you’re lucky they might have some weights or a bike to put on the floor)

  • AT ETPT WE GO THE EXTRA MILE!!

    • Use of various Treatments/ Modalities as needed:

      • Ultrasound

      • E-Stim (TENS/IFC/High Volt/Russian)

      • Cold Laser (Great for healing and pain control, no discomfort)

      • Taping (Kinesio-Taping and other techniques)

      • Hot/Cold Packs (If within a distance that will allow use)

      • Massage (Portable percussion unit available, as needed)

      • Manual Techniques

      • Lymphedema Certified Therapists

      • Treatment of Balance Disorders/Vertigo (We carry physioballs, foam mats and rollers, BOSU ball, and other pieces of equipment for balance work)

      • EACH PATIENT WILL RECEIVE THEIR OWN FOLDER WITH OUR LOGO AND THE HOME HEALTH COMPANY’S LOGO (IF PROVIDED: STICKER) THE FOLDER WILL HAVE:
        • THERABAND FOR THE PATIENT TO KEEP

        • SAMPLE OF BIOFREEZE

        • PRINTED HOME EXERCISE PROGRAM WITH CLEAR PICTURES AND INSTRUCTIONS.

        • CONTACT INFORMATION FOR THE SUPERVISING PT AND PTA

      • All modalities based on evaluation and patient need. ( IF WE CAN GET IT IN THE CAR AND THE PATIENT NEEDS IT WE WILL TRY TO PROVIDE)

  • Timely return of all documents related to patient care (Assessments, Supervisory visits, Daily Notes, etc.)

  • WATCH THE CLOCK?  NOT ETPT: WE SPEND THE REQUIRED TIME WITH EACH PATIENT BASED ON NEED. MOST VISITS ARE OVER 45 MINUTES IF NOT LONGER, DEPENDING ON TOLERANCE. (IF A PATIENT CAN ONLY TOLERATE 30 MINUTES IT WILL BE DOCUMENTED!

  • MEDICAL NECESSITY: With Medicare rules and guidelines limiting a lot of frequencies to 12/14 visits we know that supporting documentation can be critical. ETPT WILL PRIVIDE A DETAILED LETTER OF MEDICAL NECESSCITY,  IF NEEDED,  TO AID IN DEEMING PT SESSIONS “MEDICALLY NECESSARY”

  • Competitive Rates (One flat rate, no price increase for any of the above services!)

  • No charge for Mileage

  • Possible transition from home health to outpatient (if patient meets those requirements per Home Health Care Company)

    • We have the only ALTER G ANTI-GRAVITY TREADMILL IN HOPKINS COUNTY! Pt.’s with Dx’s including: Total Joint Replacements, CVA, Osteoarthritis, Pain, Amputees, Debility, and the list goes on. All can benefit from the ability to exercise without the force of gravity creating stress on the joints. This Treadmill also has a video monitoring system allowing us to analyze gait, etc.
